Douglas Fir Tree (Pseudotsuga menziesil, ssp menziesii)
- Encourages you to stand in your own power, solidly rooted in your legs like tree trunks. This helps you to ground ideas and step out with practical action. Supports the peripheral nervous system in the legs.
As the essence says of itself:
I AM confident practical grounded action.
Medicinal, Food & Wildlife Qualities:
Douglas fir trees grow in dry to moist forest from sea level to 6,000 feet from coastal British Columbia, Canada to central California, U.S. In Oregon and Washington states, it is a dominant species from the crest of the Cascade mountain range to the coast. The thick bark of mature Douglas fir trees make them resistant to fire. Flat needles that create a “bottle-brush” appearance around the stem and 2 to 4 inch cones that accumulate on the ground under the tree are effective ways to identify Douglas fir trees. Coastal indigenous peoples used the wood for fuel, spear handles, harpoons, fire tongs, and fishhooks. The pitch was used to seal the joints of tools and other implements, for caulking canoes and to make salves for wounds and skin irritations. Also, Douglas fir trees provide food for some native butterflies.
Use Douglas Fir Tree Essence when you have difficulty stepping into your power and grounding your ideas and plans into practical action. It is also helpful if you have difficulty emotionally or physically feeling strong and embodied in your legs.
Douglas Fir Tree Essence encourages you on the energetic, emotional and physical levels to be fully in your legs. It does this by strengthening the energetic circuits that support the peripheral nervous system in the legs, so you can feel solidly rooted in your legs. Then it promotes the confidence to step out with practical action.
This essence was made by the “no-pick” method. While the essence was being made, gemstones of amber, black onyx, green tourmaline, icosahedron quartz, inca jade, smokey quartz, tiger’s eye, and drusy quartz were placed among the plants with the storage (mother) bottles. The sun acts as a transformer to step down spiritual energies from higher dimensions. While the essence was being made, Amber acted as a lens to receive and focus sunlight for this purpose. Black Onyx fosters inner strength, focused attention, and efficiency, and strengthens the legs by stimulating the connection between the feet and root chakra. Green Tourmaline helps you to overcome fear of change and enlivens your energy fields. It stimulates healthy cellular reproduction and strengthens the heart. Icosahedron cut quartz
has 20 (5X4) equilateral sides. It is a bridge between the 5th Dimension - the entry into the unified Spiritual realms - and the 4 cardinal directions (N, S, E, W) on Earth. Inca Jade encourages you to delight in life, this time of being Spirit in the world of matter. Smokey Quartz is a premier grounding stone that helps you be more embodied and engaged with the world. Tiger’s Eye brings discernment, grounding, physical vitality, confidence and practical action. Drusy quartz crystals help to energize and stabilize your subtle bodies. The actions of the gemstones inform the way this flower essence seats into the body/mind.
